Transportation Tips for your Wedding Day

Selecting your Limo, Party Bus or a Rolls Royce for Transportation on your wedding day is more important than you might think.  You need to make sure the company you select is dependable with great drivers and a well-maintained vehicle.  Here are a few tips for picking the right company and vehicle:

Book your car company at least six months out, sooner if you can.

You should hire your car company sooner than later so you can get the vehicle of your choice with the right company.  After you have your wedding date, ceremony and reception locations and your timeline determined, start researching.  Dream Wedding and Event Planners can save you time and money by helping you research our preferred limo companies that have proven track records with our past couples.  They can also pass on a discount to you simply because we are handling the details for you.

The Style of your Vehicle

A classic white limo is perfect for a traditional wedding.  If this is not your style, you can match your ride to your taste.  You can have a classic car take the Bride to the Church then around town with the the new Mr. and Mrs. for pictures between the Ceremony and Reception.  But what about your Wedding Party?  You can hire a fun party bus or limo so they can celebrate going around town with you.  You can ditch the classic car at a certain point and hop into the limo or party bus with your wedding party for the final pictures.  Then everyone can head back to the Reception together having the time of your lives.

Be sure to visit the car rental company to see the vehicle of your choice.

We don't want any surprises on your wedding day, especially with your limo, party bus or specialty car.  You can most certainly view the fleet of vehicles they offer on their website, but seeing it in person will give you the reassurance that you have selected the car that is right for you and your wedding party.

When choosing the rental time, plan for lateness or delays.

Dream Wedding and Event Planners will help you put together a very detailed, comprehensive Timeline from the beginning of your day until the very end.  It is critical to allow for the Ladies or the Men starting a little late on their way to the Ceremony or taking a bit longer than you plan for after-Ceremony pictures around town.  Kathy Byrum, your Lead Planner will make sure everything stays on schedule so you don't keep your Guests waiting.  However, it is always wise to set aside a certain portion of time in the schedule for traffic issues or other tie-ups.  Again, the last thing we want is for anyone to feel late or rushed at any time.  This is your wedding day...  Your only focus should be getting dressed, arriving and having a wonderful time.
